Trip Introduction

It’s an added advantage if you have read the ‘Man Eaters of Kumaon’ before visiting this famous Indian National Park. The book brings to life for today’s generation the famous Bengal Tiger, her beauty, ferociousness and grace! This national park named after the great hunter lives up to its name as it brings out the adventurer in you from first day one! Jim Corbett is the oldest national park of India and spread across 520 Sq Km’s, there’s multiple varieties of Flora and Fauna. Established in 1936, it belongs to the Nainital District in Uttarakhand state of India.

One can reach Ramnagar station via Ranikhet Express(Starts about 10 PM from Old Delhi Railway Station), which has a broad gauge track and from there one has to avail road transportation to reach the camp. To see more train details, visit here.

By Bus

Corbett is approximately 300 km from Delhi, While going by road from Delhi, one has to take the Hapur Moradabad, Rampur stretch.

The Terrainspotter team recommends the Road Trip to travellers but with some caveats. It is best advised to start early for this drive(about 6 AM) otherwise the roads from Garmukteshwar Ghat to Moradabad are packed with traffic. After beating the traffic by starting early, cross Garmukteshwar and Gajroula to Moradabad. After that in case you are a driving enthusiast and prefer an uninterrupted scenic drive, then Devipura –Ramnagar stretch is just for you! This stretch; that extends to 60 km is lined with lush green Mango, Neem and Eucalyptus trees. Driving on this one lane ‘road to perfection’ can actually be so refreshing that one can easily forget about the hazardous traffic jam that one had to go through in the Moradabad, Gajroula stretch.
